Troopers Investigate Gunshot Fired into Felton Home


Delaware State Police are investigating a single gunshot into a home north of Felton on Friday night.

Troopers responded to the residence in the unit block of Appalachian Drive around 8:15 p.m. for a reported single gunshot. The resident reported sitting in the living room when he heard a loud noise towards his bedroom. He walked in and turned on the bedroom light to observe pieces of drywall on his bed and rug. He looked up and discovered a hole in the wall, appearing to be from a projectile. He then saw a bullet on the carpet near the entrance of the room.

Troopers searched the neighborhood and neighbors reported hearing a single gunshot sound near the north side of that residence. There are no reported injuries.

There is no suspect information at this time. Anyone with information is asked to contact Delaware State Police Troop 3 at (302) 697-4454 or Delaware Crime Stoppers at 1-800-TIP-3333.
